The assurance that we are loved is what we often crave for.
No human, male or female is exempted from this “longing”.
Sometimes, we look for it in friendships and our relationships with people of the opposite sex if it was not lavished on us by our parents.
We want to be sure we are accepted even with our flaws and scars once we find ourselves attached to a particular group or individual.
Hold on there for a minute…
WHAT ABOUT THE CONSTANT ASSURANCE OF GOD’S LOVE?
Do we believe it when our pastors tell us Jesus loves us?
Do we believe the line of that worship love song that we often put on repeat or it’s just the sound of music that appeals to us.
To some of us ACCEPTANCE = LOVE, it’s a fixed equation in our minds…but wait a minute…what if there’s MORE?
Hey sis, Hey bro, do you need a relationship with the opposite sex to feel loved or believe that you’re loved genuinely and unconditionally?
Do you still blame your parents’ unacceptable way of showing you love?
Do you still blame your ex for showing you less love?
Have you even truly loved a single person by God’s standard of love? Even the one you’re head over heels in love with right now?
The fact still remains that a man cannot give what he has not been given.
If a man has not been given or shown love, how can he show love?
If a man was only shown a warped and distorted way, can he be expected to love beyond what he has learnt and been shown?
A man whose concept of loving others depends on their being good to him would definitely not understand how to reflect the “God kind of love” that loves despite a person being good or bad.
When God “the creator” made man, I believe he made a “space” that can only be filled with His love and when we are filled with his love, we’ll be enabled to love others.
Fill up that space with God’s love, there’s nothing else in this world that can satisfy that longing.
You’ll be enabled to love your lover to the extent that you know God loves you.
May God grant us more understanding
